Publisher's Summary

She’s off-limits. He has none. 

There’s a girl. Beautiful. Popular. Fake. And my obsession. My fall. Probably my damnation.

Did that stop me? Do I care? No and no. There’s a line between right and wrong. Moral and immoral. And then there’s her. I cross every limit with blood-coated fingers. She says she hates me. I say I hate her too as I trap her, own her. Make her all mine. 

Ruthless Empire is part of Royal Elite series but can be listened to on its own. For a better understanding of the world, you might want to listen to the previous titles first. This is a mature new-adult audiobook and contains situations that some listeners might find offensive.

What a way to end this series!

Who doesn’t love a good blindside? Cole and Silver’s relationship throughout this whole series has been the definition of “it’s complicated”. Getting to see where it all started and watching it play out from each of their point of view gave me a greater understanding of who they really are. It was dark and twisted and had me second guessing myself up until the very end. I’m sad to see this incredible series come to an end, but these characters I’ve grown to love will stay with me forever.

Another successful collaboration between Rina Kent, Shane East and Keira Stevens. Shane and Keira’s amazing voices makes each one of Rina’s wonderful characters resonate, taking this story to a whole other level.

Perfect!

Rina Kent has found an amazing duo in Keira Stevens and Shane East. They brought Cole and Silver to life with this narration. I was completed hooked on Ruthless Empire from start to finish. I listened to it for 8 hours straight.

Cole and Silver's story is probably my favorite in the Royal Elite. I waited out 5 books to get to them and it was worth the wait.
Cole is ruthless, and hot as sin. Shane East brought him to life and made me love him more. Keira did an amazing job at making me feel all the things. Silver is more than meets the eye and I loved having the layers revealed.

Ruthless Empire was amazing when I read it and when I listened to the audio I swear you would have thought I didn't know what was going to happen.

Ruthless Empire is one of my top audio reads. I loved everything about it.

A story of firsts

These duet voice actors never cease to amaze. I have been listening to the Royal Elite story since Deviant King, and even now listening to this story I’m amazed that I actually feel as if I’m listening to characters specific to this story. The voice actors managed to render the personalities of Cole and Silver perfectly, the quiet scholarly alpha Cole and the superficially confident Silver. Again, a listening adventure as the voice actors flawlessly perform a range of tones and inflections and a diversity of characters.

This story follows the blossoming love story starting with a childhood friendship and silent respect to their slightly taboo young adulthood relationship. Aside from Deviant King’s Elsa and Aiden, this couple was my favorite in the Royal Elite series. Overall this story was one of the most steamy and captivating and had a delightful little twist characteristic Rina Kent’s books.

Excellent performance, great story.

Stellar!

Shane East and Keira Stevens narrate another stellar audiobook. I love how they took the roles and brought this book to life with their exceptional narrating skills. Cole and Silver’s story is chaotic and I loved every minute of it.

Phenomenal!!

“Cole and Silver’s story have me breathless! Their story was everything I wanted and way much better. Dark, twisted and suspenseful with the perfect dosis of heat and passion. Together they were like fire! Silver was ok. I knew we were going to see more of her and it was quite interesting seen her layers. Cole, he was such a jerk but to be honest I kind of expected him to be liked that. I loved him there’s no doubt about it. At this point I’m already in love with Shane’s voice and Keira’s too! I couldn’t dare to imagine this audiobook without their narration. Both of them have this unique and special way of portraying Rina’s characters. A must listen audio that blew my mind! It was pure bliss.”

Cole has always been my favorite


When I started this book I knew I was going to love it. Cole has always been the most intriguing of the four Horsemen to me. I knew there was more to silver but learning more about her story humanized her and made you empathize with her. We should all be so lucky to experience a passionate love affair like Cole and silver. It’s why we read books isn’t it? To escape our day-to-day lives and find ourselves immersed in something truly special.
This book series has provided a bit of escapism and I couldn’t be happier.

Definitely A Memorable Audio for Me!

Originally 4.5 but Listed as 4 Stars, but the Audiobook made this Book Even More Enjoyable!

I Give This Book a 4.5/5 Star Rating, Listing as 5.

Updated: September 11, 2020
Oh My Goodness was this Audiobook Amazing!
Seriously If You thought the Book was Great, The Audiobook Was Spectacular!
Oh My Goodness Shane East was Perfect for this book and boy can he vocalize psychotic well 😆
That Second Epilogue IS E.V.E.R.Y.T.H.I.N.G!!!
😍🥰
The Audio Made This Book Darker & Cemented Silver & Coles Relationship Even More! and it was Simply Perfect.
I Actually have to say that I’m glad that I read the Book first & Heard the Audio Second because then I could sit back and listen and visualize the story even more, already knowing what’s going to happen, but you find yourself catching pieces you might’ve unknowingly missed the first time like you do when you watch a movie over and over.
I Can’t Praise This Audio Enough. Such a Memorable Audio!
Narrators: 5/5!
Format Read: eBook & Audiobook

Older Review:
HEA(?): Yes!
Dark(?): I Love DARK books so my rating will be different from other’s. 3.5-4/5
Drama: 5/5
Suspense: 5/5
Predictability: 1.5-2/5
Heat: 4.5-5/5
Romance: 4-4.5-5/5, I couldn’t decide, but I think this rating fits actually Lol.

I Will Give ZERO Spoilers.
I Definitely Suggests reading this Series in order, but you can read this one as a Standalone.
I will continuously reread this book over and over again, there were surprises around every single corner!
I Really Didn’t Want This Book to End!! 😫

But it did feel a tad bit rushed near the last half, cause I was a tad confused here and there. I personally would’ve preferred their book to be a duet rather than a single book.


I Highly Anticipate the Upcoming Epilogue Novella & I Desperately NEED Jonathan King’s Books Now!! 😍😍
I Seriously hope that the Other Dad’s Get Books as well!

Last full book in this series is my favourite

I didn't want this book to end. Just like I don't want to say goodbye to Royal Elite, I didn't want to close the book on Cole and his chaos. I will say that this tied up the whole series beautifully with the darkness I've come to expect from this author. But I adored this and this whole series and it's one I'll most certainly come back to. ⭐⭐⭐⭐🌟(4.5 stars rounding up to 5 after listening to audio as Shane East and Keira Stevens really bring the angst and the characters to life)
